Car Maintenance At Brookside “66” in Kansas City, Missouri, Includes Ignition Systems

Car maintenance at Brookside “66” in Kansas City, Missouri, includes your vehicle’s ignition system. The purpose of the ignition system is to create a spark that will ignite the fuel-air mixture in the cylinder of an engine. It must do this at exactly the right instant and do it at the rate of up to several thousand times per minute for each cylinder in the engine. If the timing of that spark is off by a small fraction of a second, the engine will run poorly or not run at all.
Your vehicle’s ignition system gets the vehicle going and ensures that it runs smoothly. Spark plugs must fire properly to assure engine performance and emission control. New plugs should be installed at the specified mileage. Check the specification section of your owner’s manual for the proper type of spark plugs for your vehicle. The ignition system sends an extremely high voltage to the spark plug in each cylinder when the piston is at the top of its compression stroke. The tip of each spark plug contains a gap that the voltage must jump across in order to reach ground. That is where the spark occurs. Car maintenance at Brookside “66” in Kansas City is always done by technicians who are ASE certified
Car maintenance at Brookside "66" includes your vehicle's ignition system.
Spark plug wires should also be inspected for evidence of cuts, cracks, splits and corrosion. Also, at the time of changing the spark plug wires the distributor cap and ignition rotor should be replaced. At Brookside “66”, car maintenance for your ignition system can find these problems and fix them.
Some of the newer vehicles are going to distributor less ignition (DIS) and coil over plug (COP) systems. These systems have ignition coils and/or sensors that send signals to the computer. This is what takes place of the distributor cap and/or spark plug wires. This is a more efficient system because it is computer controlled, but also can be more costly when replacing them.
